Flickr Desktop Wallpaper March 22, 2007Posted by gordonwatts in Uncategorized.
On a break — like this spring break right now — I often try to do some small “fun” project. Over Christmas I put together a small application for my mobile phone which downloads images from Flickr and caches them (I’ve got a source forge setup for it, but I’ve not actually put the installer up there yet). One thing I’d been curious about doing was having some program that changed my desktop background. Should be easy to write? Thank goodness I searched Flickr for one first: there are several. This one I like a lot. It has a simple interface, you can specify an account, tags, etc., and it will download the pictures one after the other and swap out your background. When I feel I need to procrastinate (often) I just hid all my windows and check out what is on my desktop top. We all need a few more pictures in our lives! 🙂
P.S. This is a picture I found on my desktop by closing all my windows…
